WB licenses pics to Sky Deutschland

Package includes 'J. Edgar,' 'Dark Shadows'

Warner Bros. Intl. Television Distribution and News Corp.’s German satcaster Sky Deutschland announced a three-year multi-platform agreement on Tuesday.

The deal includes exclusive pay TV and SVOD rights during the license period of the first pay window to WB pics including “J. Edgar,” “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” and Tim Burton’s upcoming “Dark Shadows” in 3D.

Through on-demand service Sky Anytime, customers will be able to access films uncut and without ad interruption a year before they are available on TV. Pay TV rights extend across all distribution channels, including cable, satellite, Internet and mobile.

“Having completed similar deals last year with further important film studios, the addition of our new arrangement with Warner ensures Sky is the undisputed home of film in Germany and Austria,” said Gary Davey, exec veep of programming at Sky Deutschland.

Sky offered subscribers WB’s “Harry Potter” movies during the pre-Christmas season. More than 30 WB titles premiered via Sky on TV in the last year.
